Well, as some of you know Mr. Plum has fin rot. I put him in QT with AQ salt for 10 days to treat it, as well as Ick (which he also had). After 10 days the Ick was gone but the Fin Rot had not improved. I took him out of QT and still after 9 days I have seen no regrowth. His fins look worse!
Should I buy him some real medication or should i just wait it out and see what happens?
